The acreage, production and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and 
USDA estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The 
count\' and area detail were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food 
and Resource Economics, University of Florida, In the estimating program. The State 
Markets Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the County Agents of the 
University of Florida's Extension Service, were also very helpful In supplying area and 
county information. 9ilpment statistics were provided by the Market News sections of 
the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the 
season. These groups include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Com- 
mittee, Florida aveet Com Exchange, South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood 
Sweet CoiTi Exchange, and North Florida Growers Exchange. Sales agencies and trans- 
portation firms provided the Inputs necessary to complete the statistical story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers and processors volunteered most of the basic 
data used in developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these 
Individuals and groups is appreciated. 

Fleldmen James Spires, Immokalee; J. B, Joiner, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, 
West Palm Beach; and S. O. Parrlsh, of Parrlsh collected much of the basic acreage , 
profluction and price statistics In this bulletin. This report was assembled under the 
direction of Ron Brantner and G. Norman Rose of the Florida Crop and Livestock 
Reporting Service and E. F. Scarborough, Bureau of Market News.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS— Dxiring the growing season, 
estimates were prepared for most crops on a seasonal 
basis to indicate available supplies for shorter periods of 
time than the entire crop year. This bulletin combines 
the fall, winter and spring season estimates into a crop 
year total for all crops except potatoes. Production sold 
or utilized is shown by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which 
has been planted for harvest durii^ one designated season. 
Acreage lost and replanted to the same crop in time for 
harvest in the same season, is counted only once. Acre- 
age harvested andplanted again to the same crop is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially 
or completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at ma- 
turity through natural or economic causes is not included 
in the acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the acreage production per acre of mer- 
chantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested 
and sold or utilized. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT is that portion of the 
crop that reached maturity and was of merchantable qual- 
ity but was not harvested because of labor shortages, low 
prices or other economic factors; or if harvested, was 
not sold or utilized for those reasons. Estimates of acre- 
age and production lost because of economic reasons are 
difficult to define and measure, and are not attempted un- 
less such losses become significant. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equiv- 
alentprice received on an f. o.b. shipping point basis and 
encompasses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. 



Included are packing charges, selling charges, precool- 
ing, top ice, or other costs which contribute to the value 
of the product at shipping point. The value per unit for 
quantities sold to processors is the average value paid 
forusable quantities, ona "delivered to plant door"basis. 
This value includes transportation and other normal costs 
incident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of produc- 
tion sold or utilizedbased on the unit value. Cullage and 
other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

RAIL TRUCK (Piggyback) shipments are included 
in the straight rail shipments shown for each crop, imless 
specified. 

RAIL LOAD FACTORS represent the average num- 
ber of packages per rail car based on tabulations of way- 
bills in prior years showing the contents of each car. 

MIXED CARS (RAIL)— Loadings by stations are 
pro-rated by commodities, using tabulations of waybills 
in prior years. 

TRUCK SfflPMENTS are converted to equivalent 
carlots on the basis of predetermined load factors. A 
minor difference of carlot equivalents in the season total 
obtained by adding the monthly or weekly shipments may 
exist because of rounding. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The official 
USDA vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight 
basis. For this bulletin, the official estimates for most 
vegetable crops have been converted to the most commonly 
used container. The table below gives the net weight used 
per container and the nxxmber of containers per hundred- 
weight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1971-72 VEGETABLE SEASON 



Florida grown vegetables , melons , potatoes , and 
strawberries were valuedat $343.6 million for the 1971- 
72 crop year, up 21 percent from the 1970-71 season. 
The $60.6 million increase resulted from higher yields 
and better prices, and is the largest single year increase 
of record. Both planted and harvested acreage were up 
slightly during the 1971-72 season. 

For the second straight year, tomato production 
contributed most of the gain in total value with an in- 
crease of $26.0 million. The increase in tomato value 
was due to both a 2, 900 acre larger acreage harvested and 
a $1. 90 increase in price. The celery season set a record 
year in sales. Total returns of $37. 9 million nearly dou- 
bled the low value of sales realized in 1970-71. Other 
crops which increased were snap beans, cabbage, sweet 
corn, cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, green peppers, 
squash, and strawberries. Adverse weather was primar- 
ily responsible for lower dollar sales of escarole- endive, 
spinach, cantaloups, watermelons , and potatoes. Crops 
showing higheryields were cabbage, sweet corn, cucum- 
bers, eggplant, green peppers, squash, potatoes, and 
strawberries. Yields were lower for escarole-endive, 
lettuce and spinach, while per acre production for snap 
beans, celery and tomatoes were essentially unchanged 
from the previous season. 

All crops with the exception of escarole, water- 
melons, potatoes, and strawberries registered increases 
in prices last year. The largest price increase was 
registered bj^ celery which gained nearly 95 percent 
while the greatest decline was for escarole which lost 
18 percent. 

Conditions in early August were generallj' favor- 
able for planting and early crop development. Rainfall 
was adequate to excessive in most areas. Heavj' rains 
north of Dade County helped raise the water tables which 
were below normal levels. Temperatures through mid- 
September were generally below normal but favorable 
weather in late September continued into October. Scat- 
tered showers occurred during the month with some lo- 
cally heavy. Temperatures were generally above nor- 
mal. Overall field conditions were good. 

The first week of November had average tem- 
peratures from 3-6 degrees above normal. Rains of 
1/2 to 2 inches fell in most ai-eas with the West Palm Beach 
station recording 10-1/2 inches. The season's first cold 
spell hit the State on Novemter 11, with below freezing 
temperatures in North Florida and cool temperatures in 
the peninsula. Another cold front invaded the State around 
the 20th with minimums of 30-40 degrees in northern 
sections. 

FJainfall on December 2 ranged from 1-1/2 to 5 
inches in the North and Central sections with consider- 
ably less in the Southern areas. The State Climatologist 



recorded December as the warmest since 1931. 

Unseasonably warm weather continued during Jan- 
uary, and like December, it was officially the warmest in 
30 or more years. Cold air passages during the month 
were brief. Average daily temperatures dropped 20 
degrees in two days in early January. Scattered frost oc- 
curred in North and West Florida on the 7th. A second 
front dropped temperatures into the upper 30 'sin Central 
Florida on the 17th. Scattered but locally heavj' thunder 
storms occurred January 22nd. 

The first half of February was on the cold side 
with heavy rains early in the period. Temperatures on 
the 3rd were below freezing in the North and North Cen- 
tral areas but winds prevented frost. Favorable weather 
during February 14-18 was halted by cold, hard winds on 
Februarj' 19. Winds of 30-40 mph, gusting to 55 mph, 
halted planting and harvest and caused hea\'y losses of new 
plantings , as well as wind burn ard whipping of older crops . 
Blowing muck dust in the Everglades lowered quality of leaf 
cropsforseveral weeks. Lowest temperatures of the sea- 
son occurred in peninsular areas on the 21st. Frost was 
general except on the East Coast. 

During March, temperatures slipped into the 30 's 
on the 6th and 10th, with some light, scattered frost on 
the 10th. I^ain and hail hit the East Glades section of 
Dade County on the 5th. Strong winds the 11th and 12th 
occurred in Ft. Myers- Immokalee and Everglades areas. 
A succession of squall lines beginning on the 28th pre- 
ceded the passage of another cold front on March 31st 
with high winds, heavy rains, thunderstorms and sev- 
eral tornadoes. 

Temperatures for April remained generally a- 
bove normal even with the near weekly passages of cold 
fronts. Early month rains of 2-4 inches fell in most 
sections except the South Central and Lower East Coast. 
Windy, cool weather passed through the State on the 8th 
and 9th. Palm Beach County had hea\-y rains April 29- 
30 with up to 6-9 inches in some East Palm Beach fields. 
The Everglades sweet corn cropwas particularly affect- 
ed as 1-9 inches of rain caused too- rapid maturity at the 
May harvest peak. 

Numerous thundershowers occurred durir^ May. 
Nearly 4-1/2 inches of rain fell along the Lower East 
Coast from May 13-19. Alachua County received locally 
heavy rainfall in excess of 5 inches in late May. 

Early June temperatures were on the cool side 
with some record lows being set in the northern stations. 
On June 17-19 rains spimiingoff Hurricane Agnes totaled 
5 inches or more in the North and West, sharply reduc- 
ing the late-season watermelon crop in thes areas. 

Much of the weather data was supplied by ESSA 
and the Frost Warning Service.

SNAP BEANS 
1971-72 



Production of bush and pole beans in Florida to- 
taled 4. 3 million bushels during the 1971-72 season, up 
from the previous two crop years, but still below earlier 
season levels. An increase in acreage accounted for the 
gain as the average yield of 118 bushels per acre was 
unchanged from the previous season. 

The average f. o. b. price of $4. 62 was the second 
highest of record; second to the $5. 09 received in the 
1969-70 season. The favorable return per bushel boost- 
ed the total value of sales to a record $19.7 million, 
which was a 9 percent increase over 1970-71 

Snap bean supplies are available from September 
through June with monthly volumes relatively steady 
from November to May. Unseasonably warm weather 
during December and January resulted in a very rapid 
maturity. In contrast to normal, volume during 1971-72 



was significantly heavier in February and March and 
lighter in April and May. 

Florida's snap beans are grown in all vegetable 
areas except the East Central and Southwest. Pole beans 
are primarily grown in the Dade County area, with small 
acreages also grown in the West and West Central areas. 
The Southeast, with 87 percent of the harvested acreage, 
is the major producing area, with continuous supplies 
throughout the season. 

Wet weather adversely affected September plant- 
ings and November harvest in Pompano, with some acre- 
age lost. Snap bean crops sustained some damage from 
cold winds in mid-January and again in mid-February. 
Heavy rains in early April caused severe damage to 
crops in Broward County and resulted in some lost 
acreage. 



CABBAGE 
1971-72 



Florida growers of cabbage harvested 7. 6 million 
sacks and crates during the 1971-72 season which sold 
for $15. 7 million. This gross f. o.b. value is the second 
largest of record, exceeded only by the 1969-70 crop 
which returned $16. million on 23 percent less produc- 
tion. Although the 19, 100 acres planted was the highest 
since 1960, and 2 percent more than that of the previous 
year, heavy acreage losses resulted in only 17,600 acres 
harvested, the same as the previous year. Yields were 
improved, however, with the 430 crate average being the 
best since the 1968-69 season. The average f, o.b, price 
of $2. 08 per crate was up from the $1. 92 of the previous 
year, but well below the $2. 73 average for the 1969-70 
season. 

Movement during the heavy January-April period 
was the most stable in recent years, with monthly pro- 
duction totals varying no more than 300, 000 crates. 

The Hastings area, with 50 percent of the State's 
harvested acreage, produced 44 percent of the total vol- 
imie. The North Central area ranked second with 4,460 
acres or 25 percent of the total acreage. Favorable 
yields provided this area with 28 percent of the State's 



total output. South Florida growers harvested the best 
yields in the State, averaging 535 crates per acre. 

Planting of seedbeds was underway in early Au- 
gust with transplanting starting at Hastings as early as 
late August. However, it was mid- September before 
many growers were underway. Shower activity was var- 
iable. Some e arly cabbage at Hastings was adversely 
affected. Rain curtailed harvest at Hastings and in the 
North Central area in early December, The record 
breaking warm weather during December and January 
was not too desirable. Heavy fog, high humidity and 
high temperatures increased disease problems in some 
sections. Black rot was especially troublesome, caus- 
ing much of the acreage loss. No appreciable damage 
resulted from the cold which swept the State January 
15-17 and again in early February, bringing the first 
brief freezing temperatures to Central Florida. By May 
1, the long period of heavy weekly supplies was over and 
all areas were in seasonal decline. Late March rains 
reduced May prospects but most areas furnished good 
quality into mid-May, particularly Flagler County in the 
Hastings area and North Central sections which normally 
harvests later than other areas of the State. 



CANTALOUPS 
1971-72 



The production of cantaloups in Florida reached 
a record low level during the 1971-72 season. The 600 
acres planted, while do^vn slightly from recent years, 
are well below seedings of ten years ago. Total produc- 
tion during 1971-72, at 35,000 hundredweight, was down 
10 percent from the previous year. The season average 
price of $7. 99 per cwt. was the best in several years. 

Cantaloups are grown in all areas of the State 
except the Everglades. Most of the production is sold 



through local markets in bushel containers, Southmost 
areas furnish most of the May production while Central, 
North and West Florida provide the predominant June 
marketings. 

Beginning in 1972-73, publication of esttmatesfor 
Florida cantaloups will be discontinued. Acreage, pro- 
duction and value will be included with "Other vegetables 
and melons. "

CELERY 
1971-72 



The 1971-72 celery season in Florida is best de- 
scribed as outstanding. While the acreage harvested, 
yield, and production were about normal, excellent prices 
resulted in a record total value of 37.9 million dollars, 
which came close to doubling the 1970-71 returns. F.o.b. 
prices were very favorable from the beginning of the sea- 
son through February, resulting in an average price of 
$4. 94 for the season, which was almost double the prev- 
ious year and the best since the 1957-58 season. 

The Everglades, with 82 percent of the harvested 
acreage, is the principal area of production throughout 
the season. The North Central area (including Island 
Grove) with 15 percentof the acreage alsofumishes con- 
tinuous supplies throughout the season. Sarasota provid- 
es the balance of the production, cutting usually from Jan- 
uary into May. 

Seeding of plant beds was active in May, with first 
plants set to fields in the Everglades during the lastweek 
of July, and beginning in the Zellwood area a week later. 
All of the crop is transplanted. Scheduled plantings con- 
tinue in the Everglades through March, with the North 
Central area transplanting through April. The Sarasota 
crop is planted weekly, October through early February. 

Harvest began during the lastweek of October and 



supplies reached good volume in time for the Thanksgiv- 
ing Day demand. Yields remained low during the record 
warm month of December but increased to agood level in 
Januarys', continuing through mid- April. The warm win- 
ter weather speeded maturitj' in all areas with some Ever- 
glades plantings harvesting 10-14 days ahead of schedule 
during the winter months. The warm temperatures made 
disease control more difficult, but quality was generally 
maintained and sizes continued good throughout the sea- 
son. About 8 percentof the planted acreage was not har- 
vested, which is about the normal rate of abandonment. 

State-wide, the production of celery was gener- 
ally steady most of the season with production from De- 
cember through May varying no more than 2-3 percent 
each month. Cutting declined seasonally during the lat- 
ter half of May with June supplying only 5 percent of the 
total production. Final loadings were made during the 
first week of July. 

Celery is subject to a Federal marketing order 
administered by the Florida Celery Committee. Their 
field supervisors provide acreage and production data. 
In cooperation with the Committee, these data are assem- 
bled into weekly and monthly reports to the participating 
industry. 



SWEET CORN 
1971-72 



Florida, the largest sweet corn producing State, 
marketed 10.9 million crates during the 1971-72 season. 
This production was up 3 percent from the previous year 
and was the largest outturn in a decade or more. Favor- 
able weather most of the season resulted in excellent 
yields, averaging 195 crates per acre for the State. Grow- 
ers harvested 55, 700 acres which was down 9 percent from 
the huge 1970-71 crop, but about equal to other recent 
years. 

Favorable prices during the fall and winter months 
resulted in an average f . o. b. return of $2. 71 per crate, 
which was up from the $2. 63 of the previous year but be- 
low the $2.86 average for 1969-70. The favorable pro- 
duction and price resulted in a record value of sales of 
$29. 5 million. This value made sweet corn the third rank- 
ing vegetable crop, contributing nearly 10 percent of the 
total return for all vegetables, potatoes and melons. 

First plantings of the season began July 30 in the 
Everglades for an October 3 harvest start. Pulling reach- 
ed full stride in mid- October but rains reduced November 
loadings. The East Coast, which began seeding during the 
week of September 20 was furnishing volume by December. 
Record warm temperatures during Decemberwere condu- 
cive to rapidgrowth and maturity. January harvesting ran 
well ahead of schedule. Weekly shipments almost doubled 



during the first week of Februarj- but volume dropped 
sharply as the first cool weather of the season slowed har- 
vest. Cold, strong winds on Februarj- 19 caused consider- 
able loss of young crops, especially in the Everglades. 
Some mature corn was blown over in the Pompano area. 
Weekly loadings continued steady at a lower level until 
early April when the Everglades spring harvest began, 
more than offsetting the phase-out of the East Coast deal. 

The Everglades appeared to be heading for a well- 
spaced spring harvest until hea\'y rains April 29-30, rang- 
ing from 1-9 inches hit the area. While many fields stood 
in water for a considerable period, dry-back was not too 
severe. In addition to harvest delays, the wet soils caus- 
ed verj' rapid maturity and lai'geear size, which resulted 
in some passed acreage because of over-maturity and a 
severe bunching of acreage. Peak movement occurred 
during tlie first three weeks of May but shipments contin- 
ued hea\'3' as the Zellwood harvest got underway. Zell- 
wood increased to full volume bj' mid-June but heavy rains 
at mid-month slowed harvest and limited late season pro- 
duction which was completed by early July. 

Small acreages furnished supplemental volume at 
Zellwood during the early fall, at Ft. Myers during the 
winter, and at Sarasota in the spring.

CUCUMBERS 
1971-72 



The 15,900 acres planted during the 1971-72 
crop year in Florida were down 5 percent from the 
16,800 planted the previous year. However, harvested 
acreage increased by 3 percent from 14,100 to 14,500. 
The average yield of 232 bushels per acre while up 
sharply from the past three seasons was close to the 
average of earlier years. The increase in harvested 
acreage and yield gave a total production of 3.4 million 
bushels, up 27 percent from the 1970-71 season. The 
total value of production, at $14.5 million was an in- 
crease of 31 percent ov-er the $11.0 million realized in 
1970-71. The average value per bushel of $4.31 was the 
highest return per bushel since the 1968-69 season. 

Over 80 percent of the total production was mar- 
keted during the fall months of November and December, 
and the spring months of April and May. Production 
during January- March is very light. Recorded ship- 
ments moving out-of-state are primarily off-shore and 
truck imports re-sold in mixed loads. 

The production of cukes is well distributed across 



the State. The Southwest area, with 39 percent of the 
harvested acreage during 1971-72, furnished 40 percent 
of the total volume. The West Central area boosted 
plantings in 1971-72 to 26 percent of the total, and pro- 
vided almost one-third of the State's output. Adverse 
weather in both these areas reduced stands in late- 
season acreage. 

Heavy rains and cold winds had considerable ef- 
fect on the 1971-72 crop. Early September rains de- 
layed plantings in the Southwest and West Central areas. 
Some acreage in the Southeast area around Pompano was 
replanted after losses from heavy rains in November. 
Strong winds in mid-January caused considerable leaf 
burn in the Southwest area and resulted in replanting 
hardest hit acreage. Cold, strong winds and frost dur- 
ing the latter half of February reduced stands in many 
young fields. Some were replanted. Hardest hit was the 
West Central area with the Southwest and Pompano areas 
also losing some of their younger acreage. 



EGGPLANT 
1971-72 



Florida's production of eggplant during the 1971- 
72 season totaled 1.05 million bushels. This was an in- 
crease of 9 percent over the 1970-71 production despite 
a 6 percent decline in harvested acreage. Offsetting the 
decline in acreage was a 17 percent increase in yields 
from 511 to 597 bushels. 

Plantings of 1,800 acres during the year was 70 
acres less than the 1970-71 crop. Both planted and har- 
vested acreage continued to decline, with planted acreage 
down significantly from the 2,900 acres planted during 
the 1960-61 season. 

Total crop value for the 1971-72 season, at 
$3.3 million, was up 21 percent from the previous crop 
year. Both increased production and better prices con- 
tributed to the gain in total dollar Sales. The season 
average f.o.b. price of $3.12 was 11 percent more than 
in 1970-71 but was still well below the $3.62 realized 



during the 1969-70 crop year. 

In contrast to 1970-71, production soldlastyear 
was relatively stablefrom November through May. Rec- 
ord warm temperatures during December and January 
were very favorable for winter quarter production. 
Loadings during February- Marchwere more than double 
those of the previous two seasons. 

The Southeast area around Pompano leads in har- 
vested acreage with 64 percent of the total. The North 
area is second with 12 percent; followed by Southwest, 
10 percent, North Central and West Central 7 percent 
each. The West Central area harvested 50 percent less 
acreage this year than last, a decline of 130 acres. Also 
harvesting less acreage were the North and North Central 
areas. Offsetting these declines were increased plantings 
in the Southwest and Pompano areas.

ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 
1971-72 



The total production of escarole and endive (in- 
cluding chicory) during the 1971-72 season totaled 3, 5 
million crates, 2 percent more than in 1970-71 and the 
largest crop in several years. The 7,900 acres harvest- 
ed were 16 percent more than the previous year and the 
largest since the 1965-66 crop year. Sharply lower yields, 
averaging 440 crates for the season, limited the increase 
in production expected from the larger plantings. Prices 
were generally favorable throughout the marketing per- 
iod. The season average f . o, b. price of $1. 86 was down 
sharply from the previous year's average of $2.23 but 
compares favorably with other recent years. The total 
value of sales, at 6. 4 million, was down 15 percent from 
the previous year's record returns of $7. 6 million. 



The Everglades, which increased its share of the 
total planted acreage to 77 percent, began seeding in late 
August, and continued weekly planting schedules through 
most of March, First cuttings began at mid-October and 
supplies were continuous through May. The Zellwood 
area, with 19 percent of the planted acreage, was also in 
production at mid-October but plants for very limited har- 
vestduring the January -March period. Smaller acreages 



grown on the Lake Placid and Sarasota mucklands furnish 
supplemental supplies during most of the crop year. 

Supplies reached good volume in November, in 
time to meet the Thanksgiving demand. Harvest was active 
in December in the Everglades muck, with the Zellwood 
harvest shifting to the warmer sandlands. Record warm 
temperatures in December and January caused crowding 
of harvesting schedules in January and resulted in some 
passed acreage. The warm temperatures also increased 
disease problems. 

On February 19, cold, heavy winds caused some 
leaf bum and considerable blowing of muck dust. Harvest 
was delayed, some recent plantings were lost, and qual- 
ity was reduced by the dust. B}'^ mid-March, the Ever- 
glades had cut out of most of their muck-dust problems 
but volume continued moderate. In early April, the North 
Central spring harvest was increasing but volume from 
the Everglades was down because of the planting losses. 
The Everglades and Sarasota harvests declined to a mid- 
May completion with harvest at Zellwood continuing un- 
til early June, Theadvanced harvest of spring crop plant- 
ings resulted in the lightest May and Jvme volume in sev- 
eral years. 



LETTUCE 
1971-72 



Florida's lettuce growers combined increased ac- 
reage, favorable yields, and excellent prices into a high- 
ly successful season. The total production of 605,000 
hundredweight was up 5 percent from the 576,000 cwt. 
harvested during 1970-71, making these the largest two 
seasons since the mid -fifties. A record season average 
f. o. b. price of $10. 80 resulted in a record value of sales 
which totaled $6, 5 million, and was up 42 percent from 
the previous year's record of $4. 6 million. 

Acreage, production and value statistics for let- 
tuce in this bulletin combined the various tj-pes into a sin- 
gle estimate. These types include the predominant Ice- 
berg and Romaine, as well as Boston, Bibb and leaf. 

The Everglades mucklands, with 72 percent of the 
planted acreage, is the major source of continuous sup- 
plies. The North Central area, with 18 percent of the 
planted acreage is the other major produciiig area. The 
Sarasota and Lake Placid mucklands also contribute sup- 
plies much of the season. 



Seeding was underway by September 1 and was ac- 
tive in all areas by mid-month. Scheduled weekly plant- 
ings continued through March, The Everglades, Sara- 
sota and Lake Placid mucks are planted for continuous 
supplies from November through May, The North Cen- 
tral muckland normally drops out of production from mid- 
December until mid-April with limited mid-season sup- 
plies grown on the warmer sandlands. 

Light harvest started at Zellwood in early October 
with first cuttings of Romaine starting in the Everglades 
in late October. Sarasota and Lake Placid followed in 
early November. Supplies of all types were increasing 
in November to good volume in early December. The 
record warm weather in December and January resulted 
in very rapid growth and maturity, and increased disease 
problems. Cold, high winds on February 19 caused pro- 
duction to drop sharply in the following weeks. Total pro- 
duction for Februarj^ was below normal and the March 
volume was sharply below February for the first time in 
several years. Supplies continued to decline in April 
and were very light after May 1. 



OTHER LEAFY VEGETABLES 
1971-72 



Florida furnishes a substantial part of the total 
U. S. supply of several leafy commodities for which es- 
timates are not published. Most of these items move 
through marketing channels in mixed carlots, both rail 
and truck. While these commodities are labeled miscel- 
laneous for statistical purposes, tliey contribute signifi- 
cantly to the State's total production of vegetables. Chin- 
ese cabbage, curly and plain parsley, and watercress 



are major contributors in this group. 

The Everglades is the predominately producing 
area for most leafy crops except watercress which is 
produced mostly at Oviedo. The North Central area also 
furnishes a good volume seasonallj' with other mixer 
commodities. Lesser acreages are grown in the Sara- 
sota, Ruskin and Lake Placid areas, mostly for in-state 
markets.

PEPPERS 
1971-72 



During the 1971-72 season, producers combined 
excellent yields with reduced plantings to produce 5.0 
million bushels, which was \ip sharply from the previous 
two seasons. 

Growers harvested 12, 800 acres during the sea- 
son as reduced plantings in the Southwest and Pompano 
areas more than offset acreage increases in Central and 
North Florida. While adverse weather heavily reduced 
spring crop stands in the Southwest area, record warm 
December and January temperatures boosted winter 
yields, which resulted ih a season average yield of 388 
bushels per acre, the best since the 1967-68 season. 

Prices were generally favorable throughout the 
season and fairly stable from month-to-month. The aver- 
age $4. 58 per bushel for the season resulted in a total 
value of sales of $22.8 million which was 28percentmore 
than in 1970-71, and the second largest return in a decade. 

Planting was underway in all Central and Southern 



areas during August. Mid-September rains caused con- 
siderable replanting in most areas. The North Central 
arealoaded a few Cubanelles and bell pepper atmid-Octo- 
ber to begin the fall season, and all areas were in produc- 
tion by the first week of November. Central area crops 
were phasing out by early December as the Pompano area 
advanced toward peak fall production and supplies from 
the Southwest area continued to increase. Due to the un- 
seasonably warm weather, plantings scheduled for Febru- 
ary were harvesting as early as January 10. 

Cold, high winds and blowing sand on February 19 
took their toll and all areas were replanting in late Feb- 
ruary. Young stands in the Southwest area were reduced 
up to 50 percent. The Pompano and Southwest areas pro- 
vided a second peak level of supplies during March but 
phased out rapidly in early April. The Central areas 
were in good volimie during May. Alachua County and 
other northern acreages were increasing in late May to an 
early June peak, making final pickings in late June as 
heavy rains ended the season. 



POTATOES 
1971-72 



Production of Irish potatoes in Florida during the 
1972 winter-spring season at 4.6 million hundredweight 
was 5 percent less than the previous year, 22 percent less 
than the 1970 production, and down a very significant 37 
percent from the 7. 3 million himdredweight in 1969. Ac- 
reage harvested at 32,600 was down 10 percent, which 
contributed to the lower production, resulting partly from 
low yields. 

Yields the last two years have been very light 
because of adverse weather. Average yields of 141 and 
134 cwt. for the past two years were low, compared with 
162 cwt. in 1970 and 180 cwt. in 19G9. The total value of 
sales at $15. 8 million was the lowest since 1963. A sharp- 
ly lower average FOB price as well as reduced produc- 
tion contributed to the lower total return for the crop. 

The South Florida winter crop is predominantly 
red-skinned varieties grown for table stock sales. The 
spring crop, principally at Hastings, is planted heavy to 
whites which move mostly as chip stock. White B's and 
creamers are utilized for canning and freezing. White- 
skinned varieties are grown primarily under contract to 
chipping firms, brokers and organizations. The remain- 
der moves to the chip stock trade through open market 
sales. A large percentage of the potatoes movingtoproc- 



essors were loaded bulk, usually without washing. About 
84 percentof the total crop moves to destination by truck. 

While South Florida plantings are classified as 
"winter", harvest continued into early May. Replanting 
was quite heavy following excessive rains December 22- 
24 and again on January 1-2. Rot of seed pieces was se- 
vere. These delays extended the planting season until a- 
bout January 22, about three weeks later than usual. Poor 
stands in fields not replanted, plus infestations of blight 
contributed to the sharp drop in yields. 

At Hastings, recurring rains delayed planting, 
which was not completed until around March 10, about a 
month behind schedule. The rains caused some replant- 
ing. Some fields not replanted had reduced stands. Frost 
and gusting winds in late February and early March ad- 
versely affected crop progress. Blight infestations re- 
duced yields on a sizeable acreage. Harvest was active 
through most of May with final diggings continuing until 
mid-June. 

"Other spring" areas had variable yields. Some 
record high yields were obtained in north and west Flor- 
ida but wind and frost took their toll in some central plant- 
ings. Harvest of late -plantings continued through June.

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1971-72 



Production of spinach in Florida during the 1971- 
72 season was the lowest of record. The 2,000 tons de- 
livered to processors was about 1/3 of the previous 
year's production and well below the 13,000 ton levels 
recorded in the mid-sixties. 

While planted acreage at 2,200 acres was the 
heaviest seeding since 1967, more than 1/2 of the acre- 
age was lost during the record warm winter season. 
Poor plant growth and heavy cullage reducedyields on the 
acreage harvested. The production shortage resulted in 



a price of $56.20 per ton which gave a total crop value of 
$112,000 delivered. 



Record high temperatures during December and 
January in the Orange and Lake County producing areas 
resulted in substantial replanting, poor plant condition 
and excessive weed growth. The first weed killing frost 
occurred on February 21, with harvest past peak. The 
acreage remaining for harvest into March was mostly 
weed-free, but only in fair condition. 



SQUASH 
1971-72 



The production of squash in Florida has held 
fairly constant during the past ten years, although acre- 
ages have shown considerable fluctuation. During the 
1971-72 season, a total of 1.4 million bushels were pro- 
duced, a 7 percent increase over the 1970-71 season, 
but about equal to the production levels of 5 years ago 
and 10 years ago. In recent years growers have com- 
bined improved yields with fewer plantings to maintain 
generally steady production levels. The 152 bushel 
average per acre during 1971-72 was about "average" 
for the past five 3'ears. 

While f. o. b prices were generally above aver- 
age throughout the season, excellent returns per bushel 
during the spring months boosted the season average to 
$5.54, the highest of record. Total f.o.b. returns, at 
$7. 5 million, were also at a new record level, up 25 per- 
cent from the previous season, and almost double the total 
value of sales realized in the earl}" 1960 's. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, j'ellow crook- 
neck, j'ellow straightneck, white, and zucchini squash. 
Dade County, with almost a 1/3 of the harvested acreage 
during 1971-72, produces yellow crookneck almost ex- 



clusively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a 
major producing area, is also an important outlet for 
squash grown in other areas of the State, especially when 
local supplies reach low levels during the winter months. 
The Southwest area produces continuous supplies of most 
types of squash, while the Central areas and North and 
West Florida furnish good volumes of most types during 
the faU and spring shipping seasons. 

Squash is one of the few crops in florida shipped 
everj' month of the year. Summer movement, however, 
is generally light and is mostly to local markets. Dur- 
ing the 1971-72 season, supplies were moderate and in- 
creasing through October and November, to a peak fall 
level during December. Volume was moderate and de- 
clining during January, to a mid-season low reached in 
late February. Production began increasing during 
March as first "spring" plantings began harvest in south- 
ern areas. Volume continued to increase during April 
as supplies from the West Central area more than offset 
the seasonal decline in Dade County. Spring volume was 
at a peak level during the last half of April and the first 
half of May, with all areas of the State in production. 
Loadings were very light after June 1 . 



STRAWBERRIES 
1971-72 



Florida's strawberry growers produced 2. mil- 
lion flats of berries during the 1971-72 season, a 14 
percent increase over the previous year, and the largest 
crop since the 1965-66 season. Planted acreage, which 
declined rapidly during the mid-sixties, has held steadj' 
in recent years. The 1,600 acres in production during 
1971-72 was unchanged from the previous year. Grow- 
ers have combined improved yields with fewer plantings 
to maintain a good level of production. A record yield 
of 1,219 flats per acre was attained during 1971-72. 
This j'ield was up substantially from the 1 , 073 flats per 
acre recorded the previous year and a third better than 
other recent years. The a\ erage f.o. b. return per flat, 
at $3.24, was down from the previous season but was a- 
bout "average". 

Laying of plastic and other field preparation was 
active in September in the West Central and Dade County 
producing areas. First plants were set to fields in Dade 
during the last week of September while the West Cen- 



tral area start followed about 10-14 days later. Plant- 
ing continued active into No\-ember with all areas setting 
plants. Transplanting was essentially completed by No- 
vember 20 in the southern areas and about a week later 
in most North Florida fields. Bloom was abundant in 
early December and light harvest had begun in both Dade 
and Hillsborough Counties by Christmas. 

Supplies were increasing in early January, but 
continuedwarm weather reduced berr5'size. Yields were 
also lowered b}' labor shortages, especially in IDade- Sup- 
plies were lighter in February' following an "early sea- 
son" peak at mid- Januar}'. Dade Countj' reached full 
volume by early March but sizes continued small. The 
Bradford County start during the first half of March 
helped boost Hillsborough and Dade Counties' volume to 
peak seasonal level during the latter part of March and 
the first half of April. Picking declined sharply in late 
April and was essentially completed by May 1.
